A night at the Victoria Hall

Today we had the great pleasure of listening to Russian classics by the St. Petersburg Philarmonic Orchestra. The public was totally thrilled. Me too ! 

The venue: The Victoria Hall was designed by the Geneva architect, John Camoletti, built between 1891-94. Its fa├žade is characteristic of the French "Beaux-Arts" style, inspired by classical and renaissance architecture. A quite simply decorated foyer leaves concert-goers totally unprepared for the decorative extravagance of the auditorium in a neo-baroque style verging on the rococo.

Canon 5dmarkIII, Tokina Fish Eye Lense 10-17mm, Iso 2500, f/4,  1/13   light conditions were quite dfficult, and in the absence of tripod I had to adjust the other parameters, the result wasn't as sharp as I wished.
